It is a shame because obviously the idea of telling the server about the client so it can return the right content is a much more generally applicable concept. Is there no effort to make MQs more general or, perhaps, some other kind of query in the web standard world that would allow the UA to pass non-display properties to the server?

No, MQs are about properties of the output device.  This is usually a
display, but not always.  However, there's no communication with the
server implied here; this is the UA talking to the page on the client
only.
